Fog vs. Steam

I am thinking that infravision might not work. Mainly because the DM describes it as steam several times, steam usually is warm, if not outright hot. This would probably make infravision useless. Just my thoughts, will wait for the official word though.

True

Good point!

PS. (A very belated) welcome to the game, ToA. I've enjoyed your posts so far.

Late Post............

I'm sorry, but some thing got in the way of me writing tonight.
If Tann will forgive me, I'll get something up tomorrow and we move forward.

If not then the out line was for Ulthok to call out everyone to go the kitchen. Peri to show Jeesia the way and Ulthok blasts off some magic missles into space were the Black robe was last seen.

I'll flash that out.

Ok here's the deal take it or leave it

Ok everyone this last year has been really hard for me as far as running Trilogy probably the hardest to date. After 9 years I'm getting worn out from having to always defend my posts because they donít work out the way you, the players, think they are supposed to or I did not take into account some minor factor. On top of all the rules lawyering going on in this game to be told I am god moding my posts so that nothing ever goes right for the party, that I am purposely screwing the party and players over really pisses me off and makes me wonder why I keep running the game. Nobody realizes how much time it takes to keep Trilogy going and to keep it interesting for everyone, including myself. Nobody that is but other DMís and I have been talking through chat and email with some of the other experienced long time DM's on here and how they would handle this and I have come to a decision on how Trilogy will be run by me from now on.

First off Rule lawyering in an on-line game is a waste of time because so much is run by yours truly, ME. As one of the DMís I talked to told me it all comes down to a question of do you trust me as your DM? If I wanted you dead I could have killed all of you and those before you in a hundred different ways in the last 9 years. So if you donít trust me to not stack the deck against you without leaving the party a way out then please, I ask you, leave my game this week as from now on I will no longer argue the rules with you. Unless I make a mistake that affects the whole party, is the cause of player death or affects the time line, my posts stand as written. Please everyone take this to heart if you continually argue the rules with me after I have closed the discussion after listening to you and making my thoughts clear I will ask you to leave my game.

I donít like asking players to leave, I want people to work things out get along and have fun. Perhaps some of you enjoy the arguing about rules with me, I donít know. My job as DM is to write a good story and make sure everyone has fun including myself. Well that enjoyment for me is fading and if I have to drop players to find it again for me and the remaining players thatís what I will do, I don't want to keep playing this way.

I was asked a little while ago by a player why canít we fight easy to kill monsters. Really, your kidding right. This game is high level, high fantasy and with that comes powerful monsters, powerful spells, Evil intelligent weapons and smart as hell bad guys. Not the killed with one hit 1st through 5th lvl ones. In all honesty most everyone in this game should know that by this time and accept it. I mean look at your character sheets and what each of you are carrying. Christ each of you guys & ladies are freaking walking arsenals of destruction. As far as other campaigns on here are concerned whether AD&D or otherwise Trilogy has the most magic available to the characters then any 6 games combined, past and present. Do you really think Iím going to throw enemies at you that you can walk over with just a few hits, no I wonít, you just have to be smarter then the bad guys.

So there it is how I will run my game from now on. No more extensive arguing over the rules, no more defending my posts because things did not go as planned. Yes I will of course still answer questions about my posts and my interpretation of the rules but after that if you donít like my explanation, Iím sorry, but please do not continue arguing over it. I hope everyone can understand the reasons behind the above. I want all of you to stay but I will not try to stop you if you leave and will not hold it against you if we should end up playing together in another game. I will be posting this Sunday the 5th of May as normal, sorry for the week delay...........

Okies

Sounds fair to me.

I actually kind of like the challenging combat scenarios. A bit more downtime would be nice between combats, but that's partly because I've been coming and going from the game a bit over the last few months.

No Problem

Tann -

I understand completely and support you as a DM.

While I wont argue with you about rules, I might ask for clarification on how you interpret things. Now this doesnít mean I will always agree with your decision, but I will respect your ruling no matter how wrong it might be.

But, it is your game and your decision, my only opinion in the end is, as you said, is to choose not to play in your game. But I donít think I will have this problem so no worries from me.

More time? Great!

I got a little clarification on Ulthok ability to see or not see in the "STREAM". It might change his choice of attack, but he'll still be advising a retreat.

Seeing

Can you post what clarification you got as there are several infravision characters.

Tann, I understand your frustration as a DM; it can be tough.

Clarifaction on Infravision

As far as infravision goes for those that have it, is just barely usable due to the heat of the steam. Ulthok gets brief flashes of Jessica, the Bhuts and Cor, or in the case of Cor, Jessica, the Bhuts and Ulthok but neither of you get any indication of Valene and or Black Robe.

Monday night............

Out of town on business. Taking classes at Chrysler tomorrow.
Tonight had dinner with our group, good food and better wine. Got a bit of a numb nose so no posting tonight. (hic)

So the Black Robe has moved. We better treat. Good for Valene to get to safer ground.

Running low ideas. The second cone of cold didn't do much.

Still don't know how to kill the the air creatures. (hic)

Out of ideas

I am out of ideas. Cor has had a spell fizzle, and attack never happen due to being blasted, making some steam and now missing with missle weapons. Not much left to try.

Maybe the town guard will arrive and save us.

Air elementals

Tann has written that they are air elementals. If so, they don't have magic resistance and we should be able to hit them with our magical weapons.
